Weight loss, a strong and flexible body, glowing skin, peaceful mind, better health – whatever you may be looking for, yoga has it on for you. However, very often, yoga is falsely understood to being limited to asana (yoga poses). As such, its benefits are only thought to be at the body level and we fail to realize those huge benefits yoga offers in linking the body, mind and breath. When you are in symmetry, the journey through life is tranquil, happier and more fulfilling. 

With all this and much more to offer, the benefits of yoga are felt in a keen yet subtle manner. Here, we look at the best benefits of yoga practice:-

1. All-round fitness

You are really healthy when you are not just physically fit, rather emotionally and mentally balanced. This is where the magic of yoga begins.

2. Weight loss

What else would one want in their right minds! Yoga benefits here too. Sun Salutations and Kapal Bharti pranayama are some ways to help lose weight.

3. Stress relief

A few minutes of yoga during the day or morning can be a great way to get rid of stress accumulated in both, the body and mind. Yoga postures and meditation are productive techniques to release stress. You can also experience how yoga helps detox the body and de-stress the mind.

4. Inner peace

We all love to visit pleasant, relaxed places, rich in nature. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a small vacation to experience this any time of the day! Benefit from a small holiday every day with yoga and meditation. Yoga is one of the best technique to calm the mind.

5. Improved immunity

Our system is a smooth blend of the body, mind and soul. An inconsistency in the body affects the mind and similarly foulness or instability in the mind can reveal as an ailment in the body. Yoga poses toughens muscles, whereas breathing methods and introspection release stress and improves immunity.

6. Living with higher awareness

The mind is constantly involved in activity – wandering in the blocked rooms of past & future , omitting the present in entirety.  Yoga help create the peace and awareness to enable you to stay completely in your present, where it can stay motivated and focused.

Yoga can even help you in your relationships with your spouse, parents, friends or loved ones. A mind that is relaxed, happy and gracious is easier to deal with. Yoga and meditation works on keeping the mind joyful and peaceful.

8. Increased energy

Do you feel completely depleted out by the end of the day? Commuting between many tasks through the day can leave you jaded. A few minutes of yoga everyday provides the secret to feeling fresh and rejuvenated even after a long day. A 10-minute meditation benefits you immensely, leaving you revived in the middle of a hustled day.

9. Better flexibility & posture

You only need to involve yoga in your daily schedule to get productive results for a body that is strong, supple and flexible. Regular yoga practice tones the body muscles. It also helps improve your body posture. This, in turn helps you with the body pain due to wrong posture.

10. Better intuition

Yoga and meditation has the power to improve your intuitions. It awakens the sixth sense. This makes you successful in the journey of life as you know what to do and when to do.

Remember, yoga is a prolonged process. So keep practicing! The deeper you sink into your yoga sessions, the more intense are its benefits.
